I have the HDHomeRun Prime with Windows Media Center and really like it. I can access it from other WMC computers in my house to watch/record TV. Nowhere have I found a 'betty crocker' set of instructions on how to setup HDHomeRun Prime with XBMC.
I have found instructions where a bunch of .strm files are created, but that doesn't work anymore and I'm pretty sure didn't apply to the Prime ever.
I can see two of the three tuners in XBMC if I setup a new video.
I have the Raspberry PI Mpeg license in place and I can stream content from my WMC, .wtv files, DVDs, misc videos, music, pictures, etc. from my FreeNAS server and they look good enough for me.
Why not the HDHomeRun Prime for watching TV?
As I use WMC for the DVR function, I'll watch recorded TV from there, so I don't want DVR via the PI.
A guide would also be nice, but one step at a time.
Thanks in advance!

I think I'm missing some fundamental step early on...overlooking something.
